Have you ever received a diagnosis of Insufficient Glandular Tissue? Maybe it was suggested after you weren’t able to produce a full milk supply with your last baby. Or the term was tossed out casually when a provider looked at your breasts prenatally.
IGT can be a scary and confusing thing to hear, particularly when you have the goal of exclusive breastfeeding! Today on the Milk Minute Heather and Maureen chat about what IGT is and what it might mean for you.
How much milk can you actually make with IGT? What can you expect? Do you need to breastfeed differently if you suspect you have IGT?
Join the Milk Minute to get the answers to these questions and more today on any podcast platform.

Listener Question: I have a question about flange sizes: I had been using at 24mm flange and the people at the hospital told me that size was fine. Then I measured myself and was 17mm. I got 21mm inserts and now when I pump my nipples are tender. I’m due for replacement parts and am looking for advice about what to order.
